The system worked

Dear Janet Napolitano (Big Sister),

The terrorist, who was on a watch list, paid cash for a one way ticket with no bags and got on a plane with no Identification. He flew in to the United States and was able to detonate his device. It was only for fellow passengers that he was subdued and the system worked. His own father called to warn U.S. officials about his son's terrorist plot to which no one was able to stop him. The system worked.

Which system worked? The one where 90-year-old grandmothers are searched before entering flights? The one where families who bought round trip tickets by credit card in advance are pulled out of line to be screened? The system worked.

Maybe it was the system that says that my 3oz of hand sanitizer cannot travel with me. That I cannot bring in outside food or drink and have to pay prices at airports. Because would be terrorists do not watch the news. We are on the lookout for anyone with a 6oz tube of medicated skin cream. Because it is the item that identifies those who wish to do us harm and not the individuals themselves. The system worked.

The system worked after passengers subdued the “suspect”. The TSA sprung in to action and notified all of the other planes in the air that airport screeners, federal agencies, and who ever is in charge of the 500,000 name list wasn't doing their jobs. Pilots and crews were made aware to look for suspicious activity; by I am sure a 90 yr old grandmother because ethnic profiling is wrong.

Now you want to bring the terrorist to a U.S. prison. Read him his rights that you have just given him. Rights that he did not have before he tried to kill U.S. citizens. Take him to a city in the U.S. with the highest Muslim population and people who cheered the 9/11 attackers and give him a trial by his peers? Are you going to ensure that he has a jury of 12 anti-American terrorist sympathizers so that he can see that the system works?

How about keeping us safe? How about using that list of 500,000 names to restrict travel? How about the system that let's us know that while we sleep at night, work to support our families, and travel someone is protecting us.

No, the system that did work was politics as usual. When you appeared and made a stupid statement. Then you had to retract your statement. Then Robert Gibbs made a stupid statement. Then President Obama had to make an appearance because he was on vacation, again, when the incident happened. Then the president had to act upset. Which I am sure he was upset. He was on vacation and left idiots in charge. Now the final step in the system will be to blame Bush. The system worked.

Maybe if the terrorists claimed that they wanted to stop healthcare reform you would be more likely to stop them. Until you are willing to protect us, I suppose we will have to continue to be vigilant citizens and guard ourselves. Hopefully we will remain on watch in the 2010 and 2012 election and vote out those who want to do us harm.

Thank you for your service to your country,

Now Please Leave.

Have yourself a merry little...

Harry Reid,

Merry Christmas. I know that in the past liberals have shunned that phrase. Trying to replace the phrase with the generic "Happy Holidays" or "Bah Humbug". However this year, I think that you will be more accepting.

I would like to bring you thanks for your gift to the American People. This was not an easy task. Like Santa, you have worked around the clock and through the night to make this possible. You have given America the largest Christmas Gift that you could bring, $2.5 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, government entitlements where there were none, and hope to illegals.

It is the gift that keeps on taking. We will get to start paying for out new gift after the holidays, even though we will not use any benefit for years.

It is with your gift that "We the People" will now be able to be accessory to the murder of out children regardless of personal belief. It is with your gift that individuals who choose to not purchase health care will now face a sort of "debtors prison". Never before has an individual had the benefit of choosing between prison and the doctor.

In our many thanks for imposing your will on us I must leave you with one final question. If the new health care coverage is so good and comprehensive, why is it that members of Congress and their families are exempt?

Hopefully in 2010, we will be able to reciprocate you overly generous gift. We would like to give you the gift of retirement and President Obama the gift of a Republican majority Congress. Now that is change you can believe in.

Your friend,

Better late then never, maybe

Dear President Obama,

Your teleprompter delivered a good speech last night and you read it with conviction. You left many questions unanswered however. Now comes the test to see if you have the resolve to follow up with the words that you spoke. This message was long over due. We need to show the Wolrd that America has the fortitude to finish what it started. That we will not give in to terrorists even if we give them a much softer name and want to bestow Constitutional Rights upon them.

The left wing of your party, your core base, is not pleased with this message. Michael Moore has stated that your actions will make you a "War" President. Senator Baucus has stated that he will do everything in his power to see that this cannot be funded. This is the test of your Presidency however. You will be measeured not by failing to pass Health Care Reform and causing the greatest Nation Debt that any generation has ever seen, but by your ability to get out of the way and allow Our great men and women in uniform to preform their job duties and defend Our Nation.

While you campaigned in the center, we all know too well that when you speak off the cuff that you drift to the far left. You think that we should "spread" the wealth around a little and that entitlements should be given by the Constitution. However, this is your time to show that Politics are second to National Defense. This is your greatest opportunity to show that the lives of American Citizens and our saftey is your number one priority.

That being said, we the people will now return to our Domestic Contigency Celebration. Or as we still like to call it, Christmas.

God Bless,
